I'd go with the 925, as you will probably be able to hit higher frequencies with it depending on the chip and provided you buy a good cooler. LGA775 is a dying platform and there is no room to upgrade, but with an AM3 board you can use DDR3 memory, and you can still upgrade to something better later on. If you are really into overclocking I'd check out the 955 also since it is a black edition @3.2 and has an unlocked multiplier.
